This question already has an answer here:
My 18 month old daughter already has figured out that she ought to use the potty for pee-pee and poo-poo. She also makes effort to use the potty, although she sometimes informs of her need to use it while in the middle of the business.
Recently we realised she's using the potty as an excuse to get out of bed when she shouldn't. For instance, while waiting to fall asleep at night she requests to leave the bed to go pee. However, she sits on the potty, doesn't actually make use of it but tries to make conversations.
Is it OK to tell her she could pee in (diaper) pants at night?
I worry that asking her to do her business in her pants may adversely effect her potty training progress.
